OHOZRA-U SERVICE. 

77ie Minister shall begin by reading one or more of the following Sentences of Scripture: 
: ^ -M = - — : 



The Lord is in His holy temple ; &c. 
THE LOKD is in His holy temple ; Let all the earth keep silence before Him. Hab. ii. 20. 

From the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same, My Xame shall be 
great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto My Xame, and 
a pure offering ; for My Xame shall be great among the heathen, saith the Lord of hosts. 
Mai. i. 11. 

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be alway acceptable in Thy 
sight, O Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer. Psalm xix. 14, 15. 

When the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and 
doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive. Ezek. xviii. 27. 

I acknowledge my transgressions ; and my sin is ever before me. Psalm li. 3. 

Hide Thy face from my sins ; and blot out all mine iniquities. Psalm li. 9. 

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit : a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou 
wilt not despise. Psalm li. 17. 

Rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God ; for He is 
gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 
Joel ii. 13. 

To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against 
Him ; neither have we obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in His laws which 
He set before us. Dan. ix. 9, 10. 

Lord, correct me, but with judgment ; not in Thine anger, lest Thou bring me to 
nothing. Jer. x. 24, Psalm vi. 1. 

Repent ye; for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. St Matt. iii. 2. 

1 will arise, and go to my Father, and will say unto Him, Father, I have sinned against 
heaven, and before Thee, and am no more worthy to be called Thy son. St. Luke xv. IS, 19. 

Enter not into judgment with Thy servant, O Lord ; for in Thy sight shall no man living 
be justified. Psalm cxliii. 2. 

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us ; but if 
we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from 
all unrighteousness. 1 John i. S, 9. 



MORNING AND EVENING PRAYER. 



Minister. 

tt . 



Then the Minister shall say, 



DEAELY beloved brethren, the Scripture moveth us, in sundry 
places, to acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wicked- 
ness ; and that we should not dissemble nor cloak them before the 
face of Almighty God, our heavenly Father, but confess them, with an humble, lowly, 
penitent, and obedient heart ; to the end that we may obtain forgiveness of the same, by 
His infinite goodness and mercy. And although we ought, at all times, humbly to acknowl- 
edge our sins before God ; yet ought we chiefly so to do, when we assemble and meet to- 
gether, to render thanks for the great benefits that we have received at His hands, to set 
forth His most worthy praise, to hear His most holy Word, and to ask those things which 
are requisite and necessary, as well for the body as the soul. "Wherefore I pray and be- 
seech you, as many as are here present, to accompany me with a pure heart, and humble 
voice, unto the throne of the heavenly grace, saying — 



A General Confession, to be said by the whole Congregation, after the Minister, all kneeling.

ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father ; We have erred, and strayed 
from Thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices 
and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against Thy holy 
laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done : 
And we have done those things which we ought not to have done : And 
there is no health in us. But Thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, mis- 
erable offenders. Spare Thou those, O God, who confess their faults. 
Eestore Thou those who are penitent ; According to Thy promises de- 
clared unto mankind, in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, O most 
merciful Father, for His sake; That we may hereafter live a godly, 
righteous, and sober life, To the glory of Thy Holy Xame. 

[1 The Declaration of Absolution, or Bemission of Sins ; to be made by the Priest alone,

ALMIGHTY God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who desireth 
not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wicked- 
ness and live, hath given power, and commandment, to His Ministers, 
to declare and pronounce to His people, being penitent, the Absolution 
and Remission of their sins. He pardoneth and absolveth all those who 
truly repent, and unfeignedly believe His holy Gospel. Wherefore let 
us beseech Him to grant us true repentance, and His Holy Spirit, that 
those things may please Him which we do at this present ; and that the 
rest of our life hereafter may be pure and holy ; so that at the last we 
may come to His eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

The People shall answer here, and at the end of every Prayer, Amen.

Or this: 



ALMIGHTY God, our heavenly Father, who of His great mercy hath promised forgive- 
ness of sins to all those who, with hearty repentance and true faith, turn unto Him ; Have 
mercy upon you ; pardon and deliver you from all your sins ; confirm and strengthen you 
in all goodness ; and bring you to everlasting life ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

IF Then the Minister shall kneel, and say the Lord's Prayer : the People still kneeling, 
and repeating it with him, both here, and wheresoever else it is used in Divine Service.

APOSTLES' CREED. 
I BELIEVE in GOD the FATHER Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth: 
And in JESUS CHRIST His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the HOLY 
GHOST, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, 
and buried; He descended into Hell; The third day He rose from the dead; He ascended 
into Heaven; And sitteth on the right hand of GOD the FATHER Almighty; from 
thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. 

I believe in the HOLY GHOST; The Holy Catholic Church; The Communion of 
Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body; And the Life everlasting. 
Amen. 



MORNING AND EVENING PRA YER. 



NICEXE CREED. 



I BELIEVE in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, and of 
all things visible and invisible : 

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only-begotten Son of God ; Begotten of His Father 
before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God ; Begotten, not 
made; Being of one substance with the Father; by Whom all things were made: Who 
for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the 
Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made man : And was crucified also for us 
under Pontius Pilate ; He suffered and was buried : and the third day He rose again, 
according to the Scriptures: And ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of 
the Father: And He shall come again, with glory, to judge both the quick and the dead; 
Whose kingdom shall have no end. 

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord, and Giver of life, Who proceedeth from 
the Father and the Son ; Who with the Father and the Sox together is worshipped and 
glorified; Who spake by the Prophets: And I believe one Catholic and Apostolic Church: 
I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins : and I look for the Resurrection of 
the dead : and the Life of the world to come. Amen.

all our doings, being ordered by Thy governance, may be righteous in Thy sight ; through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

A Collect for Peace. (ONLT IN EVENING.) 

OGOD, from whom all holy desires, all good counsels, and all just works do proceed ; 
give unto Thy servants that peace, which the world cannot give; that our hearts may

fear of our enemies, may pass our time in rest and quietness; through the merits of 
Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.

OLORD, our heavenly Father, the high and mighty Ruler of the universe, who dost 
from Thy throne behold all the dwellers upon earth ; most heartily we beseech Thee, 
with Thy favour to behold and bless Thy servant, The President of the United States, and 
all others in authority; and so replenish them with the grace of Thy Holy Spirit, that they 
may always incline to Thy will, and walk in Thy way. Endue them plenteously with 
heavenly gifts ; grant them in health and prosperity long to live ; and finally, after this life, 
to attain everlasting joy and felicity ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



MORNING AND EVENING PR A YER. 9 

1 The following Prayers are to be omitted here, when the Litany {page 10) is read. 
A Prayer for the Clergy and People. 

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God. from whom cometh every good and perfect gift, send 
down upon our Bishops and other Clergy, and upon the Congregations committed to 
their charge, the healthful spirit of Thy grace; and, that they may truly please Thee, pour 
upon them the continual dew of Thy blessing. Grant this, O Lord, for the honour of our 
Advocate and Mediator, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

A Prayer for all Conditions of Men. 

OGOD, the Creator and Preserver of all mankind, we humbly beseech Thee for all sorts 
and conditions of men, that Thou wouldest be pleased to make Thy ways known unto 
them. Thy saving health unto all nations. More especially we pray for Thy holy Church 
universal: that it may be so guided and governed by Thy good Spirit, that all who profess 
and call themselves Christians may be led into the way of truth, and hold the faith in 
unity of spirit, in the bond of peace, and in righteousness of life. Finally, we commend 
to Thy fatherly goodness, all those who are any ways afflicted, or distressed, in mind, body, 
or estate : that it may please Thee to comfort and relieve them, according to their several 
necessities: giving them patience under their sufferings, and a happy issue out of all their 
afflictions. And this we beg for Jesus Christ's sake. Amen. 

A General Thanksgiving. 

ALMIGHTY God, Father of all mercies, we, Thine unworthy servants, do give Thee 
most humble and hearty thanks for all Thy goodness and loving kindness to us, and 
to all men. We bless Thee for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life ; 
but above all, for Thine inestimable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus 
Christ : for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory. And, we beseech Thee, give 
us that due sense of all Thy mercies, that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful, and 
that we show forth Thy praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives ; by giving up our- 
selves to Thy service, and by walking before Thee in holiness and righteousness all our 
days : through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with Thee and the Holy Ghost, be all 
honour and glory, world without end. Amen. 

A Prayer of S. Chrysostom. 

ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us grace at this time with one accord to make our 
common supplications unto Thee; and dost promise that when two or three are gath- 
ered together in Thy Xame Thou wilt grant their requests ; fulfil now, O Lord, the desires 
and petitions of Thy servants, as may be most expedient for them; granting us in this 
world knowledge of Thy truth, and in the world to come life everlasting. Amen. 

2 Cor. xiii. 14. 

THE grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the 
Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore. Amen.

O God, merciful Father, who despisest not the sighing of a contrite 
heart nor the desire of such as are sorrowful; mercifully assist our 
prayers which we make before Thee in all our troubles and adversities, 
whensoever they oppress us; and graciously hear us, that those evils 
which the craft and subtilty of the devil or man worketh against us, 
may, by Thy good providence, be brought to nought; that we Thy 
servants, being hurt by no persecutions, may evermore give thanks 
unto Thee in Thy holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

WE humbly beseech Thee, O Father, mercifully to look upon our infirmities ; and for the 
glory of Thy Name, turn from us all those evils that we most justly have deserved; 
and grant, that in all our troubles we may put our whole trust and confidence in Thy 
mercy, and evermore serve Thee in holiness and pureness of liviDg, to Thy honour and 
glory; through our only Mediator and Advocate, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

ALMIGHTY God, Father of all mercies, we, Thine unworthy servants, do give Thee 
most humble and hearty thanks for all Thy goodness and loving-kindness to us, and to 
all men. We bless Thee for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life; 
but, above all, for Thine inestimable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord 
Jesus Christ; for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory. And, we beseech Thee, 
give us that due sense of all Thy mercies, that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful, 
and that we show forth Thy praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives ; by giving 
up ourselves to Thy seryice, and by walking before Thee in holiness and righteouness all 
our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with Thee, and the Holy Ghost, 
be all honour and glory, world without end. Amen. 



ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us grace at this time with one accord to make our 
common supplications unto Thee ; and dost promise that when two or three are gathered 
together in Thy Name, Thou wilt grant their requests ; Fulfil now, O Lord, the desires 
and petitions of Thy servants, as may be most expedient for them; granting us in this 
world knowledge of Thy truth, and in the world to come life everlasting. Amen. 

THE GRACE of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the 
Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore. Amen.

hearing Thy blessed Word, and in worshipping Thee in Thy holy Church. Help us, O 
Lord, to turn away our thoughts from pleasure, folly, and worldly cares, and teach us to 
join in Thy service with delight ; and to be serious and attentive — and may Thy Holy 
Spirit be with us this day in our goings out and comings in, for Jesus Christ's sake. 
Amen. 

OLORD Most High, who art our life, our strength and joy, our ever present helper 
and defender, we come to confess our sins before Thee, and to pray for what we 
need. Give us the mind which was in Christ Jesus our Lord. Make us gentle and 
obedient, loving, brave, and true. Keep our childhood holy, and our youth pure and 
good, so that the longer we live we may grow more and more into the likeness of the 
perfect man. Thou knowest our temptations, Heavenly Father: help us to watch 
against them, and to win the victory over them, remembering that Thou hast promised 
to those who are faithful unto death a crown of life. Pity our weakness, O Lord, for 
we are Thy children and the work of Thy hands; Thou hast called us by our names; we 
are Thine. Send down upon us, for our present need, the dew of Thy heavenly grace. 
Bless us in the work before us now. Make us quick to learn and eager to be taught; 
may the good seed of Thy Word, planted in our hearts to-day, bring forth abundant fruit 
in days to come. Thou hast made our bodies the temples of Thy presence ; may our 
lives show forth Thy praise. Lord, hear our prayer, and let our cry come unto Thee for 
the sake of Thy dear Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

KEEP us in Thy fold, O Thou Shepherd of Israel, and lead us forth continually by 
the green pastures and the still waters, till, supported by Thy rod and staff, we pass 
through the dark valley of the shadow of death, fearing no evil, for Thou art with us, 
and enter Thy Courts of Light and Joy, there to dwell with Thee for ever. Amen.

New mercies, each returning day, 

Hover around us while we pray ; 

New perils past, new sins forgiven, 

New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven. 

If on our daily course our mind 

Be set to hallow all Ave find, 

New treasures still of countless price, 

God will provide for sacrifice.

The trivial round, the common task, 
Will furnish all we ought to ask : 
Room to deny ourselves : a road 
To bring us daily nearer God. 
Only, O Lord, in Thy clear love 
Fit us for perfect rest above ; 
And help us this, and every day 
To live more nearly as we pray.

3 I need Thy presence every passing hour ; 

What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power? 
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? 
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me. 

4 I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless: 
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness, 
Where is death's sting? where, grave, thy victory? 

1 triumph still, if Thou abide with me. 

5 Hold Thou Thy Cross before my closing eyes; 
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies ; 
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee; 
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

2 When the soft dews of kindly sleep 
My weary eyelids gently steep. 

Be my last thought, how sweet to rest 
For ever on my Saviour's breast. 

3 Abide with me from m rn till eve, 
For without Thee I cannot live : 
Abide with me when night is nigh, 
For without Thee I dare not die.

Xow. Lord, the gracious work begin; 
Let him no more lie down in sin. 

5 Watch by the sick; enrich the poor 
With blessings from Thy boundless store: 
Be every mourner's sleep to-night. 
Like infant slumbers, pure and light. 

6 Come near and bless us when we wake, 
Ere through the world our way we take, 
Till in the ocean of Thy love 

We lose ourselves in heaven above.

2 We know not, when we slumber, 

That we shall e'er awake, 
To see another day begin, 

Another dawning break: 
But Thou art ever watching, 

Thou wilt our vigils keep, 
And. trusting in Thy mercy, 

We sink in peaceful sleep. 

3 But. ere our eyelids closing, 

We humbly seek Thy face, 
And pray for Thy forgiveness, 

And Thy sustaining grace : 
For we are weak and erring, 

And need Thy mighty power; 
O Jesus, ever guard us 

In dark temptation's hour. 



4 We pray for those who languish 

In sickness and distress, 
That Thou wilt soothe their anguish, 

And their afflictions bless: 
We pray for those in peril 

Upon the mighty sea ; 
We pray for friends and loved ones ;- 

Do Thou their Guardian be. 

5 And now to Thee we render 

Our thanks for mercies past, 
With grateful hearts imploring 

Thy favour to the last. 
And at the great awakening 

May we be found above, — 
With saints and angels praising 

Thy providence and love.

The light first had its birth; 
On thee for our salvation 

Christ rose from depths of earth; 
On thee our Lord victorious 

The Spirit sent from heaven; 
And thus on thee most glorious 

A triple light was given. 

3 Thou art a port protected 

From storms that roimd us rise ; 
A garden intersected 

With streams of Paradise ; 
Thou art a cooling fountain 

In life's dry, dreary sand: 
From thee, like PisgaVs mountain, 

We view our promised land. 



To-day on weary nations 

The heavenly manna falls : 
To holy convocations 

The silver trumpet calls ; 
Where gospel-light is glowing 

With pure and radiant beams: 
And living water flowing 

With soul-refreshing streams. 

New graces ever gaining 

From this our day of rest, 
We reach the rest remaining 

To spirits of the blest; 
To Holy Ghost be praises, 

To Father, and to Son ; 
The Church her voice upraises 

To Thee, blest Three in One.

2 Sun-day, full of holy glory! 

Sweetest rest-day of the soul ! 
Light upon a world of darkness 

From thy blessed moments roll ! 
Holy, happy, heavenly day, 
Thou canst charm our grief away. 



3 In the gladness of His worship 
We will seek our joy to-day; 
It is there we learn the fulness 

Of the grace for which we pray, 
When the word of life is given, 
Like the Saviour's voice from heaven. 



4 Let the day with Thee be ended, 
As with Thee it has begun : 

And Thy blessing, Lord, be granted, 
Till earth's days and weeks are done; 

That at last Thy servants may 

Keep eternal Sabbath-day.

2 The day we love best! 3 O sweet Sabbath rest! 

The brightest and best of the seven, The gift of our Father in heaven; 

The pearl of the week, and the light of our way; A herald sent down from the home far away, 
We hold it a treasure, And count it a pleasure, With peace for the wearv, And joy for the dreary, 

To welcome its dawning, and praise Him to-day. Then, oh I let us thank Him, and praise Him to-day.

There are flowers that ne'er decay; 
Nothing evil goeth thither, 
Nothing good is kept away. 



2 If the flowers, that fade so quickly, 

If a day, that ends in night, 
If the sky, that clouds so thickly 

Often cover from our sight, — 
If they all have so much beauty. 

What must be God's Land of Rest, 
Where His sons, that do their duty, 

After many toils are blest? 

They that came from tribulation, 

Washed their robes and made them white, 
Out of every tongue and nation, 

They have rest, and peace, and light.

2 Yet it seemeth but a day 

Since the summer flowers were here, 
Since they stacked the balmy hay, 
Since they reaped the golden ear. 

3 Sunny days are past and gone : 

So the years go, speeding fast, 
Onward ever, each new one 
Swifter speeding than the last. 



4 Life is waning; life is brief: 

Death, like winter, standeth nigh: 
Each one, like the falling leaf, 
Soon shall fade, and fall, and die. 

5 But the sleeping earth shall wake, 

And the flowers shall burst in bloom, 
And all Nature rising break 
Glorious from its wintry tomb. 



6 So, Lord, after slumber blest 
Comes a bright awakening, 
And our flesh in hope shall rest 
Of a never-fading Spring.

Tea, come in love and meekness 

Our Saviour now to be ; 
Come to be formed in us. 

And make us like to Thee, 
Before the Day of Wrath draw near, 
When, as our Judge, Thou shalt appear. 



4 Soon shalt Thou sit in glory 

Upon "the great White Throne," 
And punish all the wicked, 

And recompense Thine own ; 
When every word and deed and thought 
To righteous judgment shall be brought. 

5 Here, good and bad are mingled ; 

But on that Judgment Day 
The Angels shall divide them, 

And take the bad away ; 
Grant, Lord, that we be faithful found 
When the last trumpet-call shall soimd !

2 Then to the watchful shepherds it was told, 
"Who heard the angelic herald's voice: "Behold 
I bring good tidings of a Saviour's birth 

To you and all the nations upon earth: 

This day hath God fulfill'd Mis promised word, 

This day is born a Saviour, Christ the Lord." 

3 He spake; and straightway the celestial choir 
In hymns of joy, unknown before, conspire: 
The praises of redeeming love they sang, 
And heaven's whole arch with alleluias rang: 
God's highest glory was their anthem still, 
Peace upon earth, and unto men good-will. 

4 To Bethlehem straight the happy shepherds ran 
To see the wonder God had wrought for man : 
And found with Joseph and the blessed maid, 
Her Son, the Saviour, in a manger laid; 
Amazed, the wondrous story they proclaim, 
The earliest heralds of the Saviour's Name. 

5 Let up, like these good shepherds, then employ 
Our grateful voices to proclaim the joy; 

Trace we the Babe, who hath retrieved our loss, 
From His poor manger to His bitter Cross; 
Treading His steps, assisted by His grace, 
Till man's first heavenly state'again takes place. 

6 Then may we hope, the angelic thrones among, 
To sing, redeemed, a glad triumphal song; 
He, that was born upon this joyful day 
Around us all His glory shall display; 
Saved by His love, incessant we shall sing, 
Eternal praise to heaven's Almighty King.

2 Still through the cloven skies they come, 3 O ye beneath life's crushing load, 

With peaceful wings unfurl' d; Whose forms are bending low, 

And still their heavenly music floats "Who toil along the climbing way, 

O'er all the weary world: With painful steps and slow! 

Above its sad and lowly plains Look now, for glad and golden hours 

They bend on hovering wing, Come swiftly on the wing; 

And ever o'er its Babel sounds O rest beside the weary road, 

The blessed angels sing. And hear the angels sing. 

4 For lo, the days are hastening on, 

By prophets seen of old, 
When with the ever-circling years

When the new heaven and earth shall own

And the whole world send back the song 

Which now the angels sing.

Praise to Christ they bear. Ox and ass of right.

They their Lord descry : 
We that Child of Mother-maid 

Sing with praises high ; 
With homage, Lord, thus duly paid 
We to Thee draw nigh.

How silently, how silently, 

The wondrous gift is given ; 
So God imparts to human hearts 

The blessings of His heaven. 
No ear may hear His coming, 

But in this world of sin, 
Where meek souls will receive Him still, 

The dear Christ enters in. 



For Christ is born of Mary, 

And gathered all above, 
While mortals sleep the angels keep 

Their watch of wondering love. 
O morning stars together 

Proclaim the holy birth ! 
And praises sing to God the King, 

And peace to men on earth.

Keep us in the narrow way ;

They strewed upon the ground, 
Whilst Salem's circling mountains 

Echoed the joyful sound ;

Eode on in lowly state, 
Nor scorned that little children 

Should on His bidding wait.

'Midst an exultant crowd, 
"Waving the victor palm branch, 
And shouting clear and loud ; 
Bright angels joined the chorus, 

Beyond the cloudless sky — 
"Hosanna in the highest: 
Glory to God on high!"

Eternally rejoice!

What pains He had to bear, 
But we believe it was for us 
He hung and suffered there.

He died to make us good, 
That we might go at last to heaven, 
Saved by His precious blood.

There was no other good enough 

To pay the price of sin, 
He only could unlock the gate

Oh, dearly, dearly has He loved, 

And we must love Him too, 
And trust in His redeeming blood, 

And try His work to do.

Save in the Cross of Christ, my God; Sorrow and love flow mingled down ! 

All the vain things that charm me most, Did e'er such love and sorrow meet? 
I sacrifice them to Thy Blood. Or thorns compose a Saviours crown?

Love so amazing, so divine.

Christ hath burst His prison ; 
And from three days' sleep in death 

As a sun hath risen; 
All the winter of our sins, 

Long and dark, is flying 
From His light, to whom we give 

Laud and praise undying.

2 They tore them from the cradle bed, 

They tore them from their mother's breast; 
But since they died for Jesu's sake, 
We call those babies blest. 

3 They might have grown up wicked men, 

That heeded not God's holy word; 
Thev might have joined their cruel crv 
Who crucified the Lord. 



But early called, they gave their lives 

For Him, who fleeing through the wild, 
Yet had a part in all their pangs, 

And loved each martyr child. 
Safe from beneath the murderer's knife 

Thev passed to His eternal rest: 
And since thoy died for Jesu's sake, 

We call those babies blest.

3 But chief, they lead us onward, 

And heavenward point the way 
To every earth-born wand'rer, 

Lest he should go astray ; 
They hold on high Christ's banner, 

With Holy Cross and shield, 
And bid us all, full bravely, 

Take now the battle-field. 

4 And then, above us shining, 

They show the golden Crown, 
The palm branch and the lily, 

The streets with roses strown, 
The harping of the victors 

Upon the sea of glass ; 
The gates for those all open 

Who into glory pass. 



5 Then to the throne of Jesus, 

They lead our trembling feet, 
Until, with Him safe sheltered, 

We rest in pastures sweet ; 
The pastures green of Eden 

Above the starry skies, 
The waters of the sheep-fold 

All still in Paradise. 

6 O Shepherd dear, we thank Thee 

For all Thy Saints so blest, 
Who lead us ever onward 

To our dear Home of rest: 
O never, never leave us, 

But keep us in the way, 
Until at last.we see Thee, 

In everlasting Day.

2 Elect from every nation, 

Yet one o'er all the earth, 
Her charter of salvation 

One Lord, one faith, one birth : 
One Holy Name she blesses, 

Partakes one holy food, 
And to one hope she presses, 

With every grace endued. 



4 'Mid toil and tribulation, 

And tumult of her war, 
She waits the consummation 

Of peace for evermore ; 
Till with the vision glorious 

Her longing eyes are blest, 
And the great Church victorious 

Shall be the Church at rest. 



Though with a scornful wonder 

Men see her sore opprest, 
By schisms rent asunder, 

By heresies distrest ; 
Yet saints their watch are keeping, 

Their cry goes up, " How long?" 
And soon the night of weeping 

Shall be the morn of song. 



Yet she on earth hath union 

With God the Three in One, 
And mystic sweet communion 

With those whose rest is won : 
O happy ones and holy! 

Lord, give us grace that we 
Like them, the meek and lowly, 

On high may dwell with Thee.

That sink and perish in the strife, 
Shall touch in faith its radiant hems, 
And spring immortal into life. 

5 Uplift the banner! Let it float 

Skyward and seaward high and wide; 
Our glory only in the Cross, 
Our only hope the Crucified.

And endless praise be given 

To Thy Almighty Name. 
Clothed in Thy dazzling brightness 

Thy Church on earth behold, 
In robe of purest whiteness, 

In raiment wrought in gold.

And join her grateful strain ;

Awake the trembling string ;

The ransomed world shall sing.

2 Jesus calls us. from the evil 

In a world we cannot flee. 
From each idol that would keep us, 
Softly, clearly—'' Follow Me." 

3 Still in joy, and still in sadness, 

We discern His own decree : 
Still He calls, in cares and pleasures, 
Softly, clearly— -Follow Me." 



4 As Saint Andrew heard thee, Saviour, 

By the Lake of Galilee, 
May we hear, and help each other 
Day by day to follow Thee. 

5 Thou dost call us ! May we ever 

To Thy call attentive be: 
Give our hearts to Thine obedience, 
Rise, leave all, and follow Thee.

May we Thy bounties thus 

As stewards true receive, 
And gladly, as Thou blessest us, 

To Thee our first fruits give. 
O! hearts are bruised and dead, 

And homes are bare and cold, 
And lambs for whom the Shepherd bled, 

Are straying from the fold. 
To comfort and to bless, 

To find a balm for woe, 



To tend the lone and fatherless 
Is angel's work below. 

5 The captive to release, 

To God the lost to bring, 
To teach the way of life and peace, 
It is a Christ-like thing.

Though dim our faith may be; 
Whate'er for Thine we do, O Lord, 
Wc do it unto Thee.

All the world is God's own field, 
Fruit unto His praise to yield ; 
Wheat and tares together sown, 
Unto joy or sorrow grown: 
First the blade, and then tbe ear, 
Then the full corn shall appear: 
Lord of harvest, grant that we 
Wholsome grain and pure may be. 



For the Lord our God shall come, 
And shall take His harvest home: 
From His field shall in that day 
All offences purge away: 
Give His angels charge at last 
In the fire the tares to cast, 
But the fruitful ears to store 
In His garner evermore. 



4 Even so, Lord, quickly come 
To Thy final Harvest-home : 
Gather Thou Thy people in. 
Free from sorrow, free from sin; 
There for ever purified, 
In Thy presence to abide : 
Come with all Thine angels, come, 
Raise the glorious Harvest-home.

2 The Church from her dear Master 

Received the gift divine, 
And still that light she lifteth 

O'er all the earth to shine. 
It is the golden casket 

Where gems of truth are stored, 
It is the heaven-drawn picture 

Of Christ the living Word. 



It floateth like a banner 

Before God's host unfurl' d, 
It shineth like a beacon 

Above the darkling world ; 
It is the chart and compass 

That o'er life's surging sea, 
Mid mists, and rocks, and quicksands 

Still guide, O Christ, to Thee. 



O make Thy Church, dear Saviour 

A lamp of burnish' d gold, 
To bear before the nations 

Thy true light as of old ; 
O teach Thy wandering pilgrims 

By this their path to trace, 
Till, clouds and darkness ended, 

They see Thee face to face.

2 Hosanna! Lord, our feeble tongue 

Xo lofty strains can raise, 
But Thou *vilt not despise the young 
Who feebly sing Thy praise. 

3 Hosanna ! Master, may we bring 

Our offerings to Thy throne : 
Not gold, nor myrrh, nor mortal thing, 
But hearts to be Thine own. 



Hosanna ! once Thy gracious ear 
Approved a youthful throng : 

Be gracious now, and deign to hear 
Our humble, grateful song. 

Saviour, if redeemed by Thee, 

Thy Temple we behold. 
Thy praises through eternity 

We'll sing to harps of gold.

Sweet hymns to Christ to sing,

For Jesus is salvation, 

And glory, grace, and rest; 
To babe and boy and maiden 

The one Redeemer blest.

O boys be strong in Jesus, 

To toil for Him is gain, 
And Jesus wrought with Joseph, 

With chisel, saw, and plane ; 
O maidens live for Jesus, 

Who was a maiden's Son; 
Be patient, pure and gentle, 

Arid perfect grace begun.

The boys and girls shall play, 
And through the dazzling mansion* 

Rejoice in endless day; 
O Christ, prepare Thy children 

With that triumphant throng 
To pass the burnished portals, 

And sing th' eternal song.

2 Though we are young and simple, 

In praise we may he bold ; 
The children in the temple 

He heard in days of old. 
And if our hearts are humble, 

He says to you and me, 
11 Suffer the little children, 

And let them come to Me." 



He sees the bird that wingeth 

Its way o'er earth and sky; 
He hears the lark that singeth 

Up in the heaven so high ; 
He sees the heart's low breathings, 

And says (well pleased to see), 
"Suffer the little children, 

And let them come to Me." 



Therefore we will come near Him, 

And joyfully we'll sing; 
No cause to shrink or fear Him, 

We'll make our voices ring: 
For in our temple speaking, 

He says to you and me, 
" Suffer the little children, 

And let them come to Me."

Far from pain and sin and folly, 
In that palace of the holy — 

I would find my mansion there. 



Where the Lamb on high is seated, 
By ten thousand voices greeted : 

Lord of lords, and King of kings !

Son of God, they own, they own Him, 

With His Xame the palace rings.

2 And since the Lord retaineth 

His love for children still ; 
Though now as King He reigneth 

On Zion's heavenly hill ; 
We'll flock around His banner, 

Who sits upon the throne, 
And cry aloud, Hosanna 

To David's royal Son: 

Hosanna to Jesus we'll sing. 

3 For should we fail proclaiming 

Our great Redeemer's praise, 
The stones, our silence shaming, 

Would their Hosannas raise. 
But shall we only render 

The tribute of our words? 
Ho, while our hearts are tender, 

They too shall be the Lord's. 
Hosanna to Jesus, our King.

2 Then it was they laid us 

In those tender Arms, 
Where the lambs are carried 

Safe from all alarms ; 
If we trust His promise, 

He will let us rest 
In His Arms forever, 

Leaning on His Breast. 

3 Though we may not see Him 

For a little while, 
We shall know He holds us, 

Often feel His smile; 
Death will be to slumber 

In that sweet embrace, 
And we shall awaken 

To behold His Face. 



4 He will be our Shepherd 

After as before, 
By still heavenly waters 

Lead us evermore ; 
Make us lie in pastures 

Beautiful and green, 
Where none thirst or hunger, 

And no tears are seen. 

5 Jesus, our good Shepherd, 

Laying down Thy life, 
Lest Thy sheep should perish 

In the cruel strife, 
Help us to remember 

All Thy love and care, 
Trust in Thee, and love Thee, 

Always, everywhere.

Still Thine Arm has been around me,

Craftier, stronger far than I,

Could, or would, have shed His blood? 
Christ the Saviour died to have us 
Reconciled in Him to God : 

This was boundless love indeed! 
Jesus is a Friend in need.

Friend of sinners was His name ; 
Now above all glory raised,

Still He calls them brethren, friends; 
And to all their wants attends.

O, day by day each Christian child 

Has much to do, without, within; 
A death to die for Jesus' sake, 

A weary war to wage with sin. 
When deep within our swelling hearts 

The thoughts of pride and anger rise, 
When bitter words are on our tongues, 

And tears of passion in our eyes; 



i i 

Then we may stay the angry blow, 

Then we may check the hasty word, 
Give gentle answers back again, 

And fight a battle for ourLord. 
There's not a child so small and weak 

But has his little cross to take, 
His little work of love and praise 

That he may do for Jesus' sake.

2 Like a vein of metal golden, 

Through the Holy books it ran ; 
First obscured in language olden, 
Then a promise clear to man. 
"Unto us a child is given," 

Formed like us in mortal mould; 
Sinless as the hosts of heaven, 
Jesus, Shepherd of the fold. 



3 Seraphs bright on high adore Him 
In the crystal paven street; 
Cast their glittering crowns before Him 
At the blessed Saviour's feet.

Joyous. 



He has closed hell's yawning portals, 
Opening wide the gates of heaven; 

He has won for sinful mortals 
Peace, the peace of the forgiven.

Alleluia is outpoured ; 
For unending, for unbroken. 

Is the feast-day of the Lord ; 
All is pure and all is holy 

That within thy walls is stored. 

3 There no cloud nor passing vapour 

Dims the brightness of the air ; 
Endless noonday, glorious noonday, 

From the Sun of suns is there: 
There no night brings rest from labour, 

There unknown are toil and care. 



4 O how glorious and resplendent, 

Fragile body, shalt thou be, 
"When endued with so much beauty, 

Full of health, and strong and free ; 
Full of vigour, full of pleasure, 

That shall last eternally.

Bear the burden on thee laid, 
That hereafter these thy labours 

3Iay with endless gifts be paid, 
And in everlasting glory 

Thou with brightness be arrayed.

2 Each little flower that opens, 

Each little bird that sings, 

He made their glowing colours, 

He made their tiny wings. 

3 The rich man in his castle, 

The poor man at his gate. 
He made them, high and lowly, 
And ordered their estate. 

4 The purple-headed mountain, 

The river running by, 
The sunset, and the morning 
That brightens up the sky. 



5 The cold wind in the winter, 

The pleasant summer sun, 

The ripe fruits in the garden, 

He made them every one. 

6 The tall trees in the greenwood, 

The meadows where we play, 
The rushes by the water, 
We gather every day; 

7 He gave us eyes to see them, 

And lips that we might tell 
How great is God Almighty. 
Who has made all things well.

He came down to earth from heaven, 
Who is God and Lord of all, 

And His shelter was a stable, 
And His cradle was a stall ; 

With the poor, the mean, and lowly, 

Lived on earth our Saviour Holy. 



4 For He is our childhood's Pattern, 

Day by day like us He grew. 

He was little, weak, and helpless, 

Tears and smiles like us He knew: 
And He feeleth for our sadness, 
And He shareth in our gladness. 



And, through all His wondrous childhood, 

He would honour, and obey, 
Love, and watch the lowly maiden 

In whose gentle arms He lay; 
Christian children all must be 
Mild, obedient, good as He. 



5 And our eyes at last shall see Him, 
Through His own redeeming love, 
For that Child so dear and gentle 

Is our Lord in heaven above ; 
And He leads His children on 
To the place where He is gone. 



Not in that poor lowly stable, 
With the oxen standing by, 

We shall see Him ; but in heaven, 
Set at God's right hand on high; 

When like stars His children crowned 

JL11 in white shall wait around.

We praise Thy holy Name I 

5 We sing a coming Jesus ; 

The time is drawing near, 
When Christ with all His Angels 

In glory shall appear; 
Lord, save us, we entreat Thee, 

In this Thy day of grace, 
That we may gladly meet Thee, 

And see Thee face to face.

Who is this, a Man of sorrows, 

Walking sadly life's hard way, 
Homeless, weary, sighing, weeping 

Over sin and Satan's sway? 
'Tis our God, our glorious Saviour, 

Who above the starry sky 
Now prepares the many mansions, 

Where no tear can dim the eye. 



Who is this — behold Him shedding 

Drops of blood upon the ground ? 
Who is this — despised, rejected, 

Mock'd. insulted, beaten, bound? 
'Tis our God, who gifts and graces 

On His Church now poureth down,; 
Who shall smite in holv vpnireance 

All His foes beneathHis throne. 



4 Who is this that hangeth dying, 

While the rude world scoffs and scorns, 
On the cross with sinners number'd, 

Pierced by nails and crown' d with thorns ?

'Mid the shining ones on high, 
In the glorious golden city 

Reigning everlastingly.

The old man, meek and mild,

And what from Eli's sense was sealed, 
The Lord to Hannah's son revealed. 
Oh! give me Samuel's ear, 

The open ear, O Lord, 
Alive and quick to hear 

Each whisper of Thy word, 
Like him to answer at Thy call, 
And to obey Thee first of all.

A lowly heart, that waits 
Where in Thy House Thou art, 

Or watches at Thy gates. 
By day and night, a heart that still 
Moves at the breathing of Thy will. 

5 Oh! give me Samuel's mind, 

A sweet, unmurmuring faith, 
Obedient and resigned 

To Thee in life and death. 
That I may read with childlike eyes 
Truths that are hidden from the wise.

5 And even they whose ears are deaf 

To every other sound — 
When they have listened in their hearts 
The still small voice have found. 

6 And they have felt that God is good, 

And thanked Him for the voice 
That told them what was right and true, 
And made their hearts rejoice.

2 Christ smiled on little children, 

And drew them to His breast; 
" Of such is Heaven's kingdom," 
Of love, and joy, and rest. 

3 They trust, and fear no evil, 

Confiding, gentle, kind; 

In simple faith, as children, 

We happiness may find. 

4 They sing their joyous carols, 

With lips and hearts as free 



439 



As winds, and waves, and sunshine, 
Or birds upon the tree. 

5 They love the fields and flowers, 

The fragrance, and the light; 
And all this world of ours 
For them is ever bright. 

6 They love the name of Jesus, 

They trust His tender care, 
And all they know of Heaven, 
Is— Christ Himself is there.

3 Eye ne'er saw, nor ear hath heard it, 
Neither can the heart conceive, 
Of the joy which God prepareth, 
For His children who believe.

Here we have our bliss in part, 
Since, our heritage for ever, 
God abideth in our heart.

2 At first I would not hearken, 
And put off till the morrow; 
But life began to darken, 
And I was sick with sorrow ; 

And I thought I heard Him say, 
As He came along His way — 
" O silly souls," &c. 

3 At last I stopped to listen, 

His voice could not deceive me ; 

I saw His kind eyes glisten, 

So anxious to relieve me; 

And I thought I heard Him say, 
As He came along His way — 
" O silly souls," &c. 



4 He took me on His shoulder, 
And tenderly He kissed me ; 
He bade my love grow bolder, 
And said how He had missed me. 

And I'm sure I heard Him say, 
As He went along His way — 
"O silly souls," &c. 

5 I thought His love would weaken 
As more and more He knew me, 
But it burnetii like a beacon, 

And its light and heat go through me. 
And I ever hear Him say, 
As He goes along His way — 
"O silly souls," &c.

Follow not the way of others, 
But trust ourselves to Jesus, 
We shall ever hear Him say, 
As He goes along His way—

By Thy plaintive infant call, 
By Thy childish tears that fall: 

Hear us, Holy Jesu.

By Thy toil and poverty, 
By Thy sorrows yet to be : 

Hear us, Holy Jesu.

On our darkened nature shine,

By the narrow manger-bed, 
By the rough clothes o'er Thee spread: 
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Gentle, patient, loving, mild, 
Trustful as a little child : 

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 



5 By the solemn praise and prayer, 
By the gifts and offerings rare 
Laid in lowly manger there : 

Hear us, Holy Jesu.

By Thy fleeing from Thy foes, 
By Thy grief that no man knows: 

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 

7 By Thy growing, day by day, 
By Thy zeal in wisdom's way, 
Quick to learn and to obey : 

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 

8 By Thy life, so lone and still, 
By Thy waiting to fulfil 

In its time Thy Father's will: 

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 



12 Make us ever long to know 
Where our God would have us go, 
Shrinking not from toil or woe : 

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 

13 May we mark the pattern fair 
Of Thy life of work and prayer, 
And for truth all perils dare : 

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 

14 May we calmly suffer blame, 
Bear the cross, despise the shame, 
In Thy strength and in Thy Name. 

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 

15 As we live, from year to year, 
Jesu, be Thou ever near ; 

Make us like Thee, Saviour dear; 

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 



16 Bid us come at last to Thee, 
And for ever perfect be, 
When Thy glory we shall see : 
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

True and everlasting

Where the Angel-legions 

Circle round Thy Throne.

Glows the western sun. 
Shedding all its gladness 

O'er our work that's done; 
Time will soon be over, 

Toil and sorrows past,

Find a rest at last. 



5 Onward, ever onward, 

Journeying o'er the road, 
Worn by saints before us, 

Journeying on to God : 
Leaving all behind us, 

May we hasten on. 
Backward never looking 

Till the prize is won. 

6 Bliss, all bliss excelling, 

When the ransomed soul 
Earthly toil forgetting 

Finds its promise goal; 
Where in joys unheard of 

Saints with angels sing, 
Never weary raising 

Praises to their King.

Buds the infant mind ;

Climb the steps of grace;

Gleams our Father's face.

Climb from height to height: 
Till the head be hoary, 
Till the eve be light! 

Forward, flock of Jesus, 

Salt of all the earth.

Spring to glorious birth;

Nor of these hath uttered 
Thought or speech or word.

Where the heaven is bright,

Till our faith be sight !

Beauty spreads around us, 

Born of holiness ; 
Arch, and vault, and carving, 

Lights of varied tone, 
Softened words and holy, 
Prayer and praise alone : 
Every thought upraising 

To our city bright, 
Where the tribes assemble 
Round the Throne of light. 

3 Nought that city needeth 

Of these aisles of stone : 
Where the Godhead dwelleth, 

Temple there is none ; 
All the Saints, that ever 

In these courts have stood, 



Are but babes, and feeding 
On the children's food. 
On through sign and token, 

Stars amid the night, 
Forward through the darkness, 
Forward into light. 

4 To the eternal Father 
Loudest anthems raise ; 
To the Son and Spirit 
Echo songs of praise ; 
To the Lord of glory, 

Blessed Three in One, 
Be by men and Angels 
Endless honours done ; 
Weak are earthly praises ; 
Dull the songs of night; 
Forward into triumph, 
Forward into light!

All good gifts returned with her returning King: 
Bloom in every meadow, leaves on every bough, 
Speak His sorrows ended, hail His triumph now. 
Hell to-day is vanquished ; Heaven is won to-day. 

3 Months in due succession, days of lengthening light, 
Hours and passing moments praise Thee in theirflight ; 
Brightness of the morning, sky and fields and sea, 
Vanquisher of darkness, bring their praise to Thee. 

" Welcome, happy morning!" age to age shall say. 

4 Maker and Redeemer, Life and Health to all, 
Thou from Heaven beholding human nature's fall, 
Of the Father's Godhead true and only Son, 
Manhood to deliver, manhood didst put on. 

Hell to-day is vanquished : Heaven is won to-day ! 

5 Thou, of Life the Author, death didst undergo, 
Tread the path of darkness, saving strength to show; 
Come, then, True and Faithful, now fulfil Thy word, 
'Tis Thine own Third Morning! Rise, O buried Lord! 
" Welcome, happy morning!" age to age shall say. 

6 Loose the souls long prisoned, bound with Satan's chain; 
All that now is fallen raise to life again; 

Show Thy Face in brightness, bid the nations see ; 
Bring again our day-light; day returns with Thee! 
Hell to-day is vanquished ; Heaven is won to-day.

Though timid hearts are quailing, 
The Lord of Hosts doth lead our van,

Our aid, our hope, our guide.

All bending low with folded wings, 
Before the Incarnate King of kings, 
In reverent awe profound.

In joy upon that Face awhile, 
Upon the loving infant smile 
Which there Divinely plays.

Too quickly will Thy slumbers break,

All mankind Salvation ! 

3 Welcome Thou to souls athirst, 

Fount of endless pleasure: 
Gates of Hell may do their worst, 

While we clasp our Treasure: 
Welcome, though an age like this 

Puts Thv Name on trial, 
And the Truth that makes our bliss 

Pleads against denial! 



4 Yea, if others stand apart, 

We will press the nearer; 
Yea, O best fraternal Heart, 

We will hold Thee dearer; 
Faithful lips shall answer thus 

To all faithless scorning, 
" Jesus Christ is God with us, 

Born on Christmas morning." 

5 So we yield Thee all we can, 

Worship, thanks, and blessing; 
Thee true God, and Thee true Man, 

On our knees confessing; 
While Thy Birth-day morn we greet 

With our best devotion, 
Bathe us, O most true and sweet! 

In Thy Mercy's ocean.

Looking for the promised King, 

Who, in Eastern quarters, 
Soon should spring to life, to rule 
O'er earth's sons and daughters, 
Them this eve, while rapt in sleep, 
One had roused in accents deep, 
" Haste ye: watch ye: vigil keep 
By Euphrates' waters!"

In a trice a star shone forth, 

O ! so brightly shining ! — 
Nearer, nearer yet it came, 

Still towards earth inclining! 
And 'twas shaped — O wondrous sight! 
Like a child enthroned in light, 
Crown' d, though yet. with sceptre bright. 
Victor — cross combining! * 



Up they spring, and quickly hie, 

Each his pathway bending. 
Through the chilly mist and gloom, 

O'er the earth depending, 
How the world in darkness lay, 
Till the Day-Star shed Its ray, 
Nature thus would fain display; 
Mystic emblems lending. 



Then one cried, "Behold the star 
Of which seers have spoken, 

Beaming on the land afar, 
And of life the token ! 

Haste we, brothers! let us speed; 

See. it moves ! It comes to lead 

To the Christ, of Judah's seed 
Born of line unbroken !' ' 



4 Then the kings with solemn gaze 
Looked on high beholding; 
For the marvel yet to come. 

Heav'n their spirits moulding, 
When behold, with silent awe, 
Suddenly the clouds they saw 
Like a darkened veil withdraw, 
Wonders more unfolding. 



7 Up they rise, and bend their way, 
Toil nor labour sparing. 
Over mountain, hill, and plain, 

Costly treasures bearing. — 
So do ye your off' rings make, 
Fear no pain for Jesu's sake. 
Ever strive heaven's road to take, 
For your Lord preparing ! 



* An allusion to a legend, preserved in an ancient Commentary on St. Matthew, that the star, on lti 
first appearance to the Magi, had the form of a radiant child, bearing a sceptre or cross.

On Easter morning early, 
When day had scarcely chased the gloom, 
And dew was white and pearly; 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
With loving but with erring mind 
They came the Prince of Life to find : 
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

With love that could not vary ; 
And thus a joy past joy she gained, 
That sometime sinner Mary: 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
The first the dear, dear form to see 
Of Him who hung upon the tree : 
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! 



3 But earlier still the Angel sped 
His news of comfort giving ; 
And "why," he said, "among the dead 
" Thus seek ye for the living ?" 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
" Go tell them all and make them blest, 
"Tell Peter first, and then the rest." 
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

And Easter hymns are sounding, 
And Easter flowers are blooming gay, 
The holy Font surrounding ;

Good Christians, see ye rise as well:

He who slumbered in the grave 
Is exalted now to save ; 
Now through Christendom it rings 
That the Lamb is King of kings.

How the lost may be restored, 
How the penitent forgiven, 
How we too may enter heaven.

Take our sins and guilt away, 
Let us sing by night and day.

They found in birthplace lowly 
There within a manger lay 

The Babe so pure and holy.

Earthly crowns were not for Him ; 

He came God's love revealing ; 
On the Cross He died for us, 

His blood forgiveness sealing. 
'Tis the Saviour promised long, 

Ring out your loudest praises ; 
Every heart this happy day 

Its grateful anthems raises.

2 High strains of praise are swelling 

From angel hosts on high, 
And one soft voice is telling 

Glad tidings from the sky ; 
Tidings of free salvation, 

Of peace on earth below ; 
Through every land and nation 

The blessed word shall go ! 

3 His children's songs shall name Him 

In many a tongue to-day ; 
His Church shall yet proclaim Him 

To people far away ; 
Till idols fall before Him, 

Till strife and wrong shall cease, 
Till all the earth adore Him, 

The eternal Prince of Peace !

2 Not here across the snow was heard 

The first sweet Christmas song ; 
But where the crimson lilies bloom, 

Judaea's hills among: 
Those hills where David long before 

His father's sheep had kept; 
And where, o'er Rachel's lonely tomb, 

The mourning Jacob wept. 



t ± TT=Trr*=*f 



4 'Twas sung by countless multitudes 

Of Angels pure and bright, 
And o'er the bare and silent hills 

There shone a glorious light; 
Such heavenly music ne'er was heard 

Before by sons of men, 
And never more shall song like that 

Be heard on earth again. 



3 And not by earthly choristers 

Was that first carol sung ; 
Not through the temple's shining courts 

Its faultless music rung ; 
No listening crowds had gathered there, 

That wondrous chant to hear ; 
Save watchful shepherds on the hills, 

No human soul was near. 



We know the tidings which they brought 

Of Christ our Saviour's birth, 
Their song of " Glory be to God, 

Good will and peace on earth ;" 
And so the Christmas carol, sung 

By Angels long ago, 
Is sweeter than all other songs 

Which Christians sing below.

Who from highest realm of heaven

Jesus by obedience 
Teaches to obey.

Tokens Thou dost give; 
By Thy wounds Thou healcst, 
By Thy death we live. 

4 Not to suffer only, 

Jesus, didst Thou come, 
But to leave us way-marks 
Pointing to our Home.

Ever may we tread, 
Safe when keeping near Thee,

When in manger rude He lay ; Now to glory born again, 

Now once more cast grief away, Callest forth our gladdest strain, 

Glory in the highest. Glory in the highest.

Tune we heart and voice anew,

2 We are brothers and comrades, we stand side by side, 

And our faith and our hope are the same ; 
And we think of the Cross on which Jesus has died. 
When we bear the reproach of His Name. 

3 We will watch ready armed if the tempter draw near, 

If he come with a frown or a smile ; 
We will heed not his threats, nor his flatteries hear, 
Nor be taken by storm nor by wile. 

4 For the world's love we live not, its hate we defy, 

And we will not be led by the throng ; 
We'll be true to ourselves, to our Father on high, 
And the bright world to which we belong. 

5 Now let each cheer his comrade, let hearts beat as one, 

While we follow where Christ leads the way ; 

'Twere dishonour to yield, or the battle to shun, 

We will fight, and will watch, and will pray. 



6 Though the warfare be weary, the trial be sore, 
In the might of our God we will stand ; 
Oh, what joy to be crowned and be pure evermore, 
In the peace of our own Fatherland !

2 In lowliness and meekness 

May we from day to day 
Still in our Master's Footsteps 

Press on our henvenward way 
O make us, blessed Master, 

Pure, even as Thou art pure, 
And grant as faithful servants 

We to the end endure ! — Cho. 

3 Bright Angels hover round us, 

And saints before the Throne 
Make ceaseless intercession 
That sin may be o'erthrown ;

They, like to us once tempted, 

The tempter overcame, 
In strength of the Almighty, 

In power of Jesus' Name.— Cho. 
Oh, joy within the vineyard 

To labour for the Lord, 
Joy on this happy feast day 

To praise with one accord ; 
Joy of all joys the greatest 

To hear Him say, " Well done ! 
Rest, good and faithful servant. 

Thy heavenly Crown is won !"— Cho,

Speak to their hearts with a message of peace. 
Comfort the sad, who in weakness are lying, 
Grant the departing a gentle release. 

3 Raise, Lord, to health again those who have sickened, 

Fair be their lives as the roses in bloom; 
Give of Thy grace to the souls Thou hast quickened, 
Gladness for sorrow, and brightness for gloom. 

4 We, Lord, like flowers, must bloom and must wither; 

We, like these blossoms, must fade and must die; 
Gather us, Lord, to Thy Bosom for ever, 
Grant us a place in Thy House in the sky.

3 Satan, through the senses, 

Seeks your souls to slay, 
Let no secret traitor 

Jesus' cause betray. 
If to lusts enticing 

Ye betray your neart, 
Can ye bid the devil, 

And the world depart ? 



Subtle foes are lurking, 

Deep your hearts within, 
There first wage the battle 

With the power of sin. 
O'er the sight and hearing, 

Touch, and taste, and smell, 
Set a watch, good Christians, 

Guard those portals well. 



4 By the sign upon you. 

By Christ's life within, 
Close in deadly conflict 

With each pleasant sin. 
Jesus' eye is on you, 

Keep your solemn vow, 
Then a crown immortal 

Shall adorn your brow.
